About this title:

Synopsis: Rosenstein reinterprets the relationship between warfare, small farms, and family structure in Rome and Italy during the Middle Republic, 320 to 100 B.C. Rome's conquests won it an empire but also brought the Republic's social and political institutions to the point of collapse. Most scholars assert that steady conscription brought about the demise of small farms and impoverishment. Rosenstein argues instead that heavy military mortality rates created a dramatic increase in the birthrate that led to overpopularion, landlessness, and chaos.

Book Description: "Represents a much needed re-evaluation of the impact of Roman warfare on agriculture and the Roman 'peasant class' during the third and second centuries B.C."-- Journal of Roman Studies

Book Description The University of North Carolina Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Historians have long asserted that during and after the Hannibalic War, the Roman Republic's need to conscript men for long-term military service helped bring about the demise of Italy's small farms and that the misery of impoverished citizens then became fuel for the social and political conflagrations of the late republic. Nathan Rosenstein challenges this claim, showing how Rome reconciled the needs of war and agriculture throughout the middle republic.The key, Rosenstein argues, lies in recognizing the critical role of family formation. By analyzing models of families' needs for agricultural labor over their life cycles, he shows that families often had a surplus of manpower to meet the demands of military conscription. Did, then, Roman imperialism play any role in the social crisis of the later second century B.C.? Rosenstein argues that Roman warfare had critical demographic consequences that have gone unrecognized by previous historians: heavy military mortality paradoxically helped sustain a dramatic increase in the birthrate, ultimately leading to overpopulation and landlessness.
